Businessman explaining progress in a chartPrograms use ongoing monitoring and continuous improvement to measure program performance, identify areas of concern, make immediate program corrections, and generate reports. These processes are woven throughout the Head Start Act and the Head Start Program Performance Standards (HSPPS). Programs use data generated by ongoing monitoring and continuous improvement to help inform their annual self-assessment. This training session explores the key components of these interrelated processes. It also recommends valuable tools and practices so that program leaders can establish or improve ongoing monitoring and continuous improvement.
